Pinnacle Mountain Falls

Table Rock State Park
Pickens, SC | map | directions

Mill Creek drops 100 feet to make this multi-tiered waterfall.  It starts as two tiers but the creek flows around boulders and over rock ledges to make this beautiful falls.  It is a spur trail off the Palmetto Trail that will lead you to the falls.  The hike of 1.4 miles, which begins on Table Rock State Park property, concludes with some difficultly on Wesleyan Methodist Camp property.

7.  Follow the roadbed to the RIGHT for 0.4 mile to a marker that indicates the Palmetto Trail continues straight.
